Sovaldi Class Action Lawsuit


Health insurance companies are facing a growing number of lawsuits from people with hepatitis C who were denied treatment with Sovaldi because they were not sick enough.

Sovaldi Class Action Lawsuit Filed in Pennsylvania

In December 2014, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) filed a federal class action lawsuit against Gilead Sciences regarding pricing of Sovaldi, a new drug that can cure over 90% of people with hepatitis C in just 12 weeks.

Gilead has been criticized for pricing Sovaldi at $84,000 — or about $1,000 per pill — making it too expensive for all but a tiny fraction of people with hepatitis C. The lawsuit claims that Gilead’s exorbitant pricing scheme amounts to “price-gouging”. SEPTA has spent about $2.4 million on Sovaldi for members of the health plan it funds and retirees, according to the Wall Street Journal.
